, whether they actually believe there's a moral equivalency there or they don't and they're using it for political purposes. either way, whichever it is, this is not just bad domestic politics for the president, and it is and they know it, for a variety of reasons, including it takes him off the economy and divides him from democrats, which is a big problem on a range of issues, but i almost resist talking about this as a political issue. this is a national security crisis. both of these issues are. you have general petraeus getting involved in a domestic matter of the first amendment issue shows the extraordinary extent to which people in the military are -- men and women overseas think this is a big enough deal, and to have it to be brought into domestic politics and inflamed by republicans, again, out of principle, maybe, out of political purposes maybe, whatever the reason is really a national and international tragedy. and unfortunately the president, for a variety of reasons, is too weak on his own to deal with it. >> i think you're right. howard? >> well, sitting in the pre

a different path. so the voter is putting the best possible face on their vote here they tell us the bush policies were unpopular. the second most unpopular atrabt for a congressional candidate to have. it's the same thing barack obama benefitted from in 2008. well, he's going to be a moderate. liberals thought he would be the great liberal. they became sort of -- they became the hope candidate in many ways. even if they haven't seen hard evidence to prove otherwise. >> it's like an old santa claus mask that always seemed to be looking at you when you're walking by. he's with me. that guy is with me. i want that. john heilemann, do you take the same view? when voters are saying they're not going back to their old way, they have a new approach. less spending, less taxes the real conservative stuff, the gold. >> i think another piece of the polling in the nbc poll that talked about how when people were asked directly are you voting against president obama or voting for the republicans? more of them said they were in favor of the republicans. they were saying this is a positive affirmative v

lie to me. >> that's a hard thing to put together. we're used to dealing in objective facts. how do you get the facts from a guy, pastor jones who won't even say who this man is who he talked to? who is this man who may have tricked him? >> i take it was is the imam from central florida, muhammad musry he was meeting with. but i asked him, like who were you on the phone with? no names. look, doesn't it fit in many ways the way much of this has played out in terms of i had a very long interview with pastor jones and tried to get to some very specifics with him why he wanted to burn the koran. what specifically was in the koran that was most offensive to him. and he hadn't even read the koran. he basically admitted maybe he had looked at a page but primary what he said was there's no mention of jesus christ in the koran as the savior. anybody who understands religions understands that would not be in there in the same way it's not in the tora. i said are you going to start burning the tora, he said no. a lot of this has been very confusing in terms of why he said he was doing this and
to have you with us, liz. thanks so much. >> thanks, ed. >> in our survey i asked you do you think tea partiers care that 43.6 million americans are living in poverty? 5% of you said yes, 95% of you said no the tea partiers don't care. that's "the ed show." i'm ed schultz. "hardball" with chris matthews starts right here from the place from politics on msnbc. we'll see you tomorrow on "the ed show" on msnbc. >>> it's teatime so who is the maddest hatter of them all? let's play "hardball." >> good evening. i'm chris matthews up in new york leading off tonight, boiling hot tea. the fire on the right that consume mike castle and threatens democrats in the fall is now beginning to burn republican bridges. in the last two days mike castle blamed his loss on lies by shawn hannity and rush limbaugh. karl rove dismissed christine o'donnell as a loser. sarah palin and rush went after rove. the tea party has a seat at the republican table. but the knives are out. and make no mistake, if this new band of republicans get -- grabs control of congress, they'll force another government shutdown and p
's operated as his father's pawn. he's accusing him of conning us to elect him president. what do you make of newt, howard? >> i've been covering newt for many years. he's a bomb thrower. he's a guy who knows the weak point to attack. what's interesting to me here is he feels free to say anything at this point. it's a kind of free fire zone within the conservative movement. and newt, who's always trying tu say the most outrageous thing and that goes back many, many years, now has moved from saying outrageous things about the ethics of the house members in the democratic leadership 15, 18 years ago, to saying these thin about a man that newt himself has no evidence for what he's alleging here.te he really has absolutely none. his facts are wrong. as mr. weigepointed out on his page and i'm just really not surprised, but kind of depressed by it. >> david, you covered this kind of spiritual territory. ideological territory. he's accusing as basically a zombie. saying his father hated the british white guys. his son is kind of a zombie like figure. in fact governed by a ghost. this is the kind
on us just makes no sense to me. >> this is what i don't get, what do you mean by scapegoating? setting up a blame game situation assuming you're going to get beaten? >> i worry about that a bit. i'm not saying it flat-out. does it cross my mind? sure. i can't think of any other reason to do this. i don't know why you think a way to motivate people is to tell them they're wrong, ungrateful, irresponsible. so when my mind can't find a good political reason. i go to future political reasons. maybe that's it or maybe they're just angry and need to get it in check. >> i think the last one is probably true. human nature may be just ticked off at the left progressive left. let's look at the way the president is using the language. quote, in a new "rolling stone" interview, the president said -- quote the idea that we've got a lot of enthusiasm in the democratic people need to shake off this lethargy. people need to buck up. there's the phrase, josh. i would imagine it's a combination of joan says they're angry that the left has been hitting them hard, and they're trying to get them guilt ridd
states. but ask yourself this, how appropriate is it clinton to backseat driving obama when he used to bristle the same thing happening to him in 1994. also, finish the following sentence. the tea party is "a," tearing apart the republican party or "b"," energizing the gop and opening up an enthusiasm gap. with democrat, the answer may tell us a lot and wait until you hear what eliot spitzer has to say about the fellow democrat who wants his old job, andrew cuomo. but that's in "the sideshow." host "face to face" on our nbc stations in nevada. and the politics editor for msnbc.com, von berger. look, we got to start with what happened on capitol hill. here's an exchange between michigan congressman john conyers and stephen colbert today. let's listen. >> i'm asking you to leave the committee room completely and submit your statement instead. >> i'm here at the invitation of the chairwoman and if she'd like me to remove myself from the hearing room, i'm theme do so. >> that is correct. >>s that fair enough. >> von, let me start with you. you've been doing this as long as i have. watch

msnbc that's going to do it for us this fine afternoon. i am dylan ratigan and "hardball" from ireland, no less, with bill clinton starting right now. >>> back to college with barack obama. let's play "hardball."\ >>> back to college with barack obama. let's play "hardball.">>> back obama. let's play "hardball." >>> good evening, i'm chris matthews in dublin, traveling this week with former president bill clinton. leading off tonight, mr. october, can president obama recapture some of that old 2008 magic? it certainly looked that way last night when 26,000 supporters turned to out for his rally in madison, wisconsin. more, by some estimates, than he drew during his campaign. he is become on the trail today again in iowa and in virginia and if, if he can close the enthusiasm gap, the democrats may be looking at a sweeter november. plus, sharron angle's habit of denying what she said on tape. we will listen to the denials and then go to the videotape. love this job. >>> also, i just went spent the entire day here on the irish isle with bill clinton and got a chance to talk to him
campaign mode. u.s. congressman jim clyburn of south carolina is the democratic whip. congressman clyburn, thank you for watching. here is president obama last night in madison, wisconsin. >> i know times are tough right now. i know times are tough. i know a lot of folks are anxious about the future and i know that during the campaign, especially after we had already started winning, the feeling was, well this is just exciting, you got those nice hope posters and then there was the inauguration and beyonce singing and bono and i know sometimes it feels a long way from the hope and excitement that we felt on election day or the day of the inauguration. but i've got to say, we always knew this was gonna take time. we always knew this was gonna be hard. >> congressman clyburn that is barack obama, the president of the united states, back in campaign mode. can he lift the spirits of the party? >> oh, absolutely. look, i've been out there every weekend for the last three, four weeks and i can tell you, i was in pennsylvania, new jersey, delaware, this past sunday, monday, tuesday, and people a
good anniversary, the day congress permanently established the u.s. peace corps. >>> let's start with bob woodward's book. andrea mitchell nbc news's chief correspondent and chuck todd is nbc's political director and chief white house correspondent. let me go to andrea first. andrea, let me read to you a quote from the book. this is something obama told his aides. "i think i have two years with the public on this. they'll stand by us for two years. that's my window." that seems to be a statement that politics plays a role in his thinking about how long to keep us in afghanistan. >> i think the politics does play a role but that is a commander in chief and a president who is trying to understand what leeway he has. i think it is defensible. i have talked to michael beschloss and others who say that this is someone trying to figure out what is tolerable by the american people. i think they can explain this and say this is exactly what he is doing. >> well, he's saying how much he can get away with in terms of keeping his troops there, because his base will depart from him otherwise
. that will do it for us. "hardball's" up right now. >>> the eye of newt. let's play "hardball." good evening. going tribal. newt gingrich, the political salve jer says theresident of the united states is actually a zombie, animated by the ghost of his african father leading a kenyan quest. he said this is the stunning, most protective model. he called barack obama a con man who managed to trick america into electing him, quote -- that's what he said this ekend. i want to kno can weo any further down this suer of hate. isn't it enough to fight over taxes and spending and wars? do we have to attack the very americanness of the president, who brought this country such honor by his rise to office? plus, we heard john boehner say he would be willing toextend the bush tax cuts for the middle class. sounds like he's willing to compromise or maybedo luring democrats down a trap. also, the big political story may come out of delaware where a sarah palin-jim demint c conservative may be poised to score the biggest upset of the season. her win would be good news for the reblican party. and how meg whit
by observing that problem, we can fix it. thank you for spending a piece of the afternoon with us. chris is up right now. >>> counterattack. let's play "hardball." good evening. i'm chris matthews in new york. the danger of strangers. a lot of republicans have a different problem. the strangers in town. people are suspicion of strangers, so hit them where it hurts. define the republicans before they can define themselves. it's already begun with negative ads filling the tv screens. will the strategy work? will it throw the republican tea partiers on the defensive? what advantage the democrats have is the county vito is with them on ending tax cuts for the wealthy. tonight, i'll ask the republicans what painful cuts he's willing to make so the wealthiest republicans can get tax breaks. plus, mckinnon and bloomberg are pushing back within the reason party. will this strengthen the party or tear it apart? and the latest on the investigation as to what caused that huge bp spill down in the gulf. now, we discover that republicans in the senate are protecting bp from subpoena power and having their
an incumbent is smaller. they argue if they can bad brush us as corrupt incumbents they can go after the fact nobody knows who they are. >> the point here is that the hour is late and polling is grim. there's not a lot that candidates can do at this late hour. if you're in the south, a democratic candidate in the south, mountain west, lots of regions in this country, your house speaker is in trouble popularity wise. your president is not that popular. the health care reform plan is not that popular. you have a big drag out there and you have to throw whatever you have out there. despite the success of a democratic legislative agenda, not getting traction. you have to throw something out there and it's often a negative ad. >> i'm thinking the old song "strangers in the night" which is the only number one song frank ever sang. it was a hell of a song. you can build a case about a stranger you can't build about an ike skelton or guy or woman who's been around for a while. you can commit infant size. go after the person before anybody knows who they are. christine o'donnell, all we know about her
